I've changed the first post, because it repeats every page. If you missed the 6 images the first time, do not worry, they will reappear somewhere down the page. I also have less images per post so it does not bog down people's slower systems...

It starts at #7, now.

Grand Central Terminal.

7. Terminal, not station...


8. Met Life and the Chrysler buildings are neighbors.


9. The 48-ft high statue of Minerva, Hercules, and Mercury. It's the largest Tiffany glass clock.


10. Vanderbilt Hall used to be the waiting area. Now it's rented out for events.


11. The other side. The chandeliers are gold plated, discovered after renovation.


12. The famous clock on the information booth. Valued over $10,000,000.


13. The dining concourse. There is a walkway inside the windows.


14. Stairway people on the other end.

Hi!
An impressive series, "bordering on a serious" street photography! On some photos I delight true life stories. My sincere congratulations,
greeting

Thank you both for your comments. More to come :-)

Grand Central Terminal, continued...

15. Dusting.


16. The ceiling of the heavens once had 2,400 bulbs. It was replaced in 1930's. The star-view is reversed on purpose, as if seen from outside the universe. The small hole above Pisces was used to erect a Redstone rocket display in 1957.


17. The bakery people shooed me away.


18. The Graybar mural in the Graybar Passage leading to the Graybar...


19. The market...


20. And our friend, again.


21. This seemed to be the photography end of the building.

22. Why is everyone here in front of the courthouse on a dreary day?


23. So Stacy can check you in for the DUMBO bridge walk.


24. The what?


25. DUMBO is Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Off-ramp. But we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. Oh, we're already here on the Brooklyn Bridge.

I'm really enjoying your NYC photos, Kyle. My grandfather worked in the post office's sorting station deep under Grand Central back in the early-20th century, and it's interesting to compare his descriptions of the floors below street level with the beauty of your photos.

I'm glad they have a little extra for you :-)

26. The north tower. The roadway is suspended from the tower using twisted wire cables.


27. They have a nice historical plaque about the builder, John Roebling, his son Washington and wife, all of whom worked on the bridge.


28. Any place within magic marker reach is fair game. People also put locks on it, inspired by a recent movie.


29. She loves New York.

30. That's the Manhattan Bridge. There are 20 bridges around Manhattan.


31. Our group is only handful among thousands...


32. There are 8 plaques illustrating the bridge building progress. Here are a couple.


33.

34. There is an actual roadway.


35. Jay-Z or somebody has the top floors.


36. Made it to the other side.


37. This is DUMBO, and that's the Manhattan Bridge.

38. A famous chocolate factory where you could view workers making chocolate. I found a bench instead. There was also a nice bakery.


39. A typical building.


40. I forget what this is or was.


41. In the trees is the River Cafe, an upper-class eatery.

42. The view from the edge of the parkway.


This was official end of the tour. Nothing left to do but cross the bridge...

43. The Stage Door door.


44. Other neighborhoods are creatively named, such as Tribeca - Triangle Below Canal St, SoHo and NoHo - South of Houston and North of Houston. (If you pronounce it like Houston Texas, you are obviously a tourist - it's "house ton".


45. Barge and statue of liberty.


46. The middle building is the tallest apartment building in the city. Supposedly the wavy exterior was inspired by the dress of the statue of liberty.

Traveling flash-back...

47. Arrived JFK airport at 6:00AM.


48. Wandered outside as I was looking for the subway-ticket kiosk.


49. They don't sell subway tickets here, knucklehead.


50. The 6:30AM crowd...


51. The AirTrain loops around all the terminals, and connects with a couple rail and subway stations.

52. The view.


53. Connecting with the LIRR into Manhattan.


54. Connecting to the subway. A little camera blur, but it's this or nothing.


55. An experienced rider.
